The addition of Tracy Lawrence to our June 29th Common Ground concert on Thursday got me thinking about something unique. Not that Tracy is going to be at our show, but what country stars have visited restaurants in Lansing.

So, I'll bet you're wondering...what does Tracy Lawrence coming to Common Ground have to do with country stars that have visited Lansing restaurants?

Well...a few years ago Tracy came here and entertained WITL listeners at a special lunch concert that we hosted at a local restaurant. So that's what got me thinking about the stars and the restaurants they've either performed at, or that they've enjoyed a meal at, or both here in Lansing.

I'm certain that I have forgotten some artists and restaurants, but here's the list that I can remember. You may find your favorite stars or restaurants here. Note that some of the artists below may no longer be recording or some of the restaurants may no longer be in operation. Still, you may think it's pretty cool to know that you and your favorite country stars might have spent some time at the same restaurants.
